The great thing about this holiday brew is that it is not too spicy. It is certainly less so than Samuel Adam's Winter Lager and Harpoon Winter Warmer, but enough of a flavor to let you know it's seasonal. I swear I could almost taste a clove-like flavor...less on the nutmeg/cinnamon/allspice. Good stuff. I'll look for it next year for sure.
I opened a pair of 2004 Anchor Winters about two weeks ago. I forgot to capture them in a photo to add up here. They got better with age -- more coffee, mellower, smoother. How spicy is this?
Heavy and probably spicy...just the way I like my winter beers. I like the "Prelude" title...makes you wonder what happens next!
Looks winter-y. Is it spicy like other winter warmers?
